THE FORM LETTER as follows....


Starting July 01, 2011, if you are eligible for Medi-Cal, you will automatically become a member of Partnership HealthPlan of California, a Medi-Cal Managed Care Health Plan. Your Medi-Cal benefits will stay the same. The way you get your health care will change.

Please do not call your eligibility worker. They do not have any information and cannot help you.

As a member of Partnership HealthPlan of California, you will get your helath care from doctors, clinics and other providers that contract with the health plan. If the doctor you are seeing now is with the health plan, you can select him or her as your Primary Care Provider. If your doctor is not with the health plan, you will need to choose one who is.

A letter will include a list of the doctors and clinics that will be part of the plan. If the doctor you see now isn't on the list, the list will help you choose one that is part of the plan. END OF FORM LETTER........

DOES ANYONE REALIZE HOW DIFFICULT IT IS TO GET A NEW M.D. ???????? or get an appointment with a new M.D. This privitization will devistate a senior, and nickle and dime each one to pay for his or her Medi-Cal share of cost. At least 20% share of cost must be paid for each visit at a doctor that is not on the list; and less people will be going to the doctors on the list. BINGO for everyone except the senior citizen.


California counties privatize MediCal  offer list of Doctors

The privatization of Caifornia's Medi-Cal program (much more complicated than revealed here) was the DIRECT RESULT of the Obama Administrations granting of a "Medicaid Waiver" to the Schwarzenegger Administration allowing California to privatize Medi-Cal , offer different coverages, reduce quality of care, allow advertising by the numerous HMOs opening up (at least 2 per county), and so forth. David Maxwell Jolly is the point person in California overseeing this draconian change to Medi-Cal.

I am a Medi-Cal recipient and will be forced to leave the care of my longtime physician (11 years) and go into a bureaucracy from hell. I suspect the quality of care to drop and the choices I have to diminish. This is a catastrophic change and it comes from the Obama Administration, something you'd expect from the Republicans really. BTW David Maxwell Jolly is a graduate of the RAND corporation the think tank that is responsible for more war and death than probably any other.

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
